The following four names of mosses are recommended for conservation: Hypnum molle with a conserved type, Meteorium with a conserved type, Papillaria, nom cons, with a different conserved type, and Rhynchostegium against Eriodon. In addition, conservation of Stirtonia A.L. Sm. (lichenized fungi) against Stirtonia R. Br. bis, already recommended by the Nomenclature Committee for Fungi, is supported. The Committee is unable to make any recommendation on the proposals to conserve Leptodontium proliferum against Tortula umbrosa, and Gertrudia validinervis against Barbula uncinicoma at this stage and is continuing its consideration of these proposals. Two proposals for modification of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature that relate particularly to bryophytes are recommended for acceptance, Art. 9 Prop. H (Taxon Prop. 219) and Div. III Prop. A (338).
